Slipknot to Ritchie Valenz, for some reason the I vi IV V chord progression just sounds amazing. I don't know why certain combinations of tones sound nice to us, nor why progressing through those tone combinations in certain ways are universally pleasant, but I am glad of it.

This video has no cuts, which was a moonpasta challenge that I silently accepted. But you should feel free to continue challenging me to do things, I like that. 

I discovered this and all of the songs in it on my own through what I already knew or searches on the internet except for the Slipknot use of the Ice Cream Changes, which I discovered via an awesome mashup (linked below) that, yes, I found on Reddit. But I was already working on the video when I found just added another layer of awesome.

Thanks to everyone who came out to see the Nerds and Music was amazing.

I'm a Slipknot fan...  I've met a lot of the members of Slipknot at one point in time or another...
